The Mushroom Festival is held the weekend after Labor Day each year in Kennett Square, PA.
The Mission of The Mushroom Festival is to promote the mushroom, educate consumers about the health benefits of mushrooms and to promote tourism in Southern Chester County, all while financially supporting local and regional charities through a grant process.
We recommend that you visit the website to check out the list of events, entertainment, contests, and exhibitions – since they are too numerous to mention on this site. What we can tell is that the festival is organized and run very well. This is a necessity – with an estimate of 100,000 visitors over the two-day event.
The Festival awarded $70,000 to local non-profits in 2010 from 2009 festival proceeds.
